Ginkgo Leaves are so wonderful for jewelry designs! Their "frilly" edges and vertical groves are so conducive to feminine jewelry. They are known to be the oldest trees in recorded history, thereby symbolizing longevity and endurance.
This Ginkgo charm necklace starts with raw Sterling Silver that I formed into 8 Ginkgo leaves of varying sizes. I layered them to form a one-of-a-kind pendant and accented two of the smallest leaves in 22kt Genuine gold for some contrast. I also added two small, Natural Turquoise stones that are bezel set and are sprinkled on the oxidized surface of this artisan charm.
I designed this necklace to provide movement and comfort for the wearer. You can see this through the Natural Turquoise Beaded chain that easily slips through the two large rings at the top of the charm. The charm itself is about 1 3/4" wide by 3/4" high. The photos depict this necklace at 18", but I offer other lengths for your preference.
